Duration of internship
Application procedure? Internship Contact Details
Duration in weeks. Days of work per week. Timings.
I did a one month internship where i was required to come to office from Monday to Friday
Timing were from 9:30-7:00 but the associates were pretty liberal with timings. You could come in by 10-10:15 and leave by 6:30 (if you had no work till then), however you were required to inform the associate in case you were planning to take a leave or half day.
First impression, first day, formalities
On the first day the training head took me for a tour around the office. She showed me where everything was and introduced me to everyone who was in office at that time. I interned under the litigation division so almost all associates were in court at that time. I met them later when they all came.
The associates were all very welcoming and friendly. They did a little chit chat and went back to work.
I was not supposed to work under just one specific lawyer so all associates/ partners could give me work when needed.
My main task was to help all lawyers in their research. I was summoned when needed and given loads of research work on various topics like Indian Stamp act, Income Tax act, Indian Contract act, Companies act etc. I was asked to find Judgments using Manupatra, SCC etc.
It was my first internship so I learnt a lot as the associates would take time to explain a new thing to me as many times as I needed. So its a great place for a newbie to intern.
The firm allowed you to go to any Court you wanted to. The good part about this firm was that they dealt with all courts. Sr Advocate Mr Rupinder Suri dealt with SC and HC and rest with tees hazari, consumer redressal forum, patiala house, saket and dwarka district court.
Work environment, people
I loved the work environment. The associates were friendly and smart.
They would regularly come and chit chat with you and give you work.
The firm had a dining room where all associates, staff and interns would have lunch together.
Staff was nice and would provide you with steaming cups of coffee, tea or lemonade whenever u needed.
All interns were provided a specific table to sit and work.
The best things AND the bad things
The best thing was that the office was a minute walk from Khan Market.
We could go out to chill at any time (if you had no work) and come back with our stomach full and pocket empty 😀
Having Khan Market in the vicinity and CP 10 minutes away provided endless dining options and hangout places. The wifi at the office was amazing and pretty fast with absolutely no restrictions so we could cover up our dull moments in office by facebook-ing or watching videos online.
I remember downloading movies in less than an hour too.
The bad things were that you had to ask for work sometimes or you would end up sitting idle. Also, no stipend.
Accommodation etc. What did you to do chill in and around the office and the place of stay?
We went to Khan market or CP to chill. The office also had a smoking Zone where you would end up standing next to associates talking and sharing a smoke.
I am from Delhi so I used to Commute to office via metro which is very convenient. otherwise there were good PGs around Lajpat Nagar.
